The Illustrated Field Guide to Congenital Heart Disease and Repair was created to provide a pocket-sized visual resource for pediatric cardiologists to assist their discussions with staff, students, patients, and their families. The book is designed to serve a broad audience of medical students, residents and nurses. In addition, it is intended as a quick reference for anesthesiologists, general pediatricians and adult cardiologists who only see the occasional patient with congenital heart disease.

  • Every chapter is full of colorful, easy-to-read diagrams and images that clearly illustrate different aspects of congenital heart disease.

  • The 3rd Edition now includes 2 new chapters, along with updates to each original chapter. Hundreds of images have been added, with a new and more realistic art style.

  • All of the information, illustrations, and images has been edited and approved by some of the world's leading pediatric cardiologists.

  • Handy wire binding allows both the pocket-sized and large format books to lie flat when open.

  • Every Field Guide has a durable, waterproof laminated cover.
